    THE STORY: Known over two centuries, the great wines of Pomerol Rouget Castle takes its name from Rougier, his former land, larger than today. Quoted in reference works (Cox and Ferret) from 1868 for the quality of its wine, the castle has retained its charm as ever: a facade intact covered with ivy, a park visitor welcome the twenty-first century as they host the nineteenth. Owner of Château Rouget since 1992, the family lovingly Labruyere preserves the past as it prepares for the future. Arrived in Bordeaux, it is not new to wine: its head is in fact Jean-Pierre Labruyère, heir to a family long after the Beaujolais vineyards. After the necessary renovation of part of the vineyard, it was attached to the vat room and cellars, now among the best performers in the name. In 1999 they added two acres, purchased from prestigious nearby castles, the vineyards of Château Rouget now extend over 18 hectares. They are aged about thirty years on average, on a clayey soil and gravel, sometimes of clay and silica, and a basement of ferruginous alios. Under the guidance of Michel Rolland, an internationally renowned winemaker, responsible since 1997 for monitoring of the vineyard and wine, and Antoine Ribeiro, Head of the Culture Area, the two grape varieties (85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon) are harvested as late as possible, manually and in small crates to best meet the perfect ripeness of grapes.
